Plan, Promote, Prove - for more business this summer
'This summer will be what you expect it to be. Set your expectations high. Plan for success and be ready to reap the rewards of your hard work' - J. BRANDON THOMPSON
Article from May Chamber Insights' Presidentís Message - Personal Commentary
By J. Brandon Thompson, President
Columbia/Adair County Chamber of Commerce
We are incredibly blessed here in Adair County to be situated right in the middle of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, and Dale Hollow Lake. Lakes draw tourists and tourists inevitably have money to spend here in our local economy.
So geography presents us with opportunities. Unfortunately, having a steady stream of tourists in and out of our community doesn't guarantee a profit boost for your business. There are three things you should do to prepare to make sure you're ready for the summer months.
Don't be afraid to think outside the box. Offer new products or services. Have a huge weekend sale to drive traffic into your business. Network with other businesses through the Chamber of Commerce to maximize your exposure. When a guest is looking for something you don't have, send them to another local business that does. When you do, they'll reciprocate.
Also, make sure we have information about your business at the Chamber office. It makes it easier for us to promote you to visitors when we have information handy to share.
